Why Choose Strutmasters Instead Of Those Other Guys
There is a wide array of parts that make up the air suspension system on your 1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator. Bringing it to the dealership each time one of these parts needs a repair gets very expensive and time consuming. When one part stops working properly, the entire system is out of sync. This kit includes two front coilover shocks, two rear Eibach springs, and two rear shocks. The kit eliminates the dependence on the faulty air parts for good. DIYers love our kits because they save lots of time, frustration and money. Each kit comes complete with installation instructions that are easy to follow. Each kit can be installed in about one hour per wheel. Scroll up on this page to review the cost difference between choosing an air vs non-air suspension system. We outline three different prices: that of repairing your air suspension system with Original Equipment parts at the dealership; that of installing aftermarket air suspension replacement parts on the Navigator piece-by-piece; and that of eliminating the faulty air suspension forever by installing a Strutmasters passive suspension system today. Read our positive customer reviews to get first-hand feedback about our kit quality and convenience.
How Do I know If My Navigator Air Suspension is failing?
Look for common signs of a failed or leaking air suspension system on your Lincoln Navigator before it is too late and total failure sets in. The most distinctive sign the air suspension has failed is a sudden loss of three to five inches of ride height in the rear of the vehicle. You may experience differences in ride height from one side to the other of the vehicle. You may have visible cracks in the rear air springs caused by dry rot and normal wear and tear. An illuminated suspension warning light on the instrument panel, and an air compressor that is working too long at a time (longer than 15-20 seconds maximum), as these are all red flag signs your suspension needs repair.

Suspension Components List
The 1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator 4WD is built with the following suspension components:
1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator 4WD Air Springs (x2)- commonly referred to as air bags, a plastic and rubber bag that uses pressurized air as a cushion (replacing a coil spring) to support the weight of the rear of the vehicle. These rubber air springs are the number one cause of all air suspension leaks. Since air springs go bad at about the same rate, if one is leaking, the others will not be far behind. For a proper repair, all of them need to be replaced at the same time.
1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator 4WD Front Air Shocks (x2)- Air shocks help dampen vibration and bounciness in the front of the vehicle.
When the front air shocks, the vehicle's front ride height will NOT drop (torsion bars support the weight). A rough ride quality in the front end is the best sign they have failed.
1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator 4WD Rear Gas Shocks (x2)- a type of shock absorber; has metal tubing filled with gas-charged hydraulic fluid that dampens vibration and bounciness caused by driving on rough road surfaces.
1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator 4WD Air Lines- tubes that carry pressurized air from a compressor to the air springs and air shocks in order to adjust the height of the vehicle.
1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator 4WD Solenoids (x4)- This vehicle is equipped with 4 solenoids. These plastic components work along with the suspension control module. The solenoids are responsible for regulating the air pressure in each air spring or air shock. Solenoids are a small piece of the suspension system but they play a big role in how well it functions. If a solenoid is not working properly, it will cause uneven ride height and, in turn, cause the compressor to burn out.
1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator 4WD Compressor- This vehicle is equipped with an onboard air compressor. The compressor is responsible for making enough air to pump up the air springs and shocks. When the air suspension starts leaking, the compressor is forced to run continuously to try and keep the air springs and shocks inflated. After a couple of days of running non-stop, the compressor will burn itself out. Replacing the compressor is a timely and expensive project to undertake.
1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator 4WD Dryer Assembly- This vehicle is equipped with a dryer assembly. The dryer assembly is responsible for getting moisture out of the air lines. Once the air suspension parts start to leak, moisture will build up throughout the air system. Moisture damages the air suspension components from the inside out. The dryer must be replaced whenever the compressor is replaced to prevent further damage.
1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator 4WD Suspension Control Module- This vehicle is equipped with a suspension control module. This module is the brain of the suspension system and it reads all of the signals that are being sent by the height sensors and determines if the vehicle needs to be raised or lowered.
1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator 4WD O-rings- Although they are the least expensive parts of the air suspension, they are responsible for maintaining the seal where all of the air lines connect. Be sure to replace the O-rings when repairing any air suspension system.

“1/19/2010- I just installed this kit in my suv. The ride is much better and I don’t hear the pump runing any more. There is no bounce from sagging air shocks and the ride height it back to original. This was not an easy job but most garage guys should be able to handle it. A spring compressor for the rear is a must and for the front it better to drop the lower control arm. Mine is a 97 and from the north east. I purchased the front & Rear
conversion kit only. I should have purchased the full kit with the ball joints and controll arms. The salt has eaten it all up. I do suggest a BIG can of luquid wrench to spray all bolts prior to doing the job. I am very happy with the sales people and this product.”
Other than that, your staff was courteous, helpful, knowledgeable and your service was great, Thanks for all you did with this order. Randy
Uneventful. Arrived on time. Two Hours to install. Expedition looks and rides good.
